Folding Metal Tables and Chairs:

Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: In response to requests from interested parties, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on folding metal tables and chairs (‘‘FMTCs’’) from the Peoples Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), covering the period June 1, 2005, through May 31, 2006. Based on the withdrawal of the request for review with respect to one company, we are rescinding this administrative review, in part. DATES: Effective Date: September 27,

2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:

Charles Riggle, Laurel LaCivita, or Matthew Quigley, Import Administration, Room 1870,

International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 4820650, (202) 4824243, and (202) 4824551, respectively.

Background On June 2, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on FMTCs from the PRC. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 32032 (June 2, 2006). We received timely requests for review from DongGuan ShiChang Metals Factory Ltd./Maxchief Investments, Ltd. (‘‘Shichang’’), Feili Furniture Development Limited Quanzhou City, Feili Furniture Development Co., Ltd., Feili Group (Fujian) Co., Ltd., Feili (Fujian) Co., Ltd (collectively ‘‘Feili’’), and New-Tec Integration (Xiamen) Co., Ltd. (‘‘New-Tec’’). On July 27, 2006, the Department published a notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of FMTCs from the PRC for the period June 1, 2005, through May 31, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 42626, 42627 (July 27, 2006). On July 28, 2006, Shichang withdrew its request for an administrative review.

Rescission of Review The Departments regulations, at 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), provide that the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, or withdraws its request at a later date if the Department determines that it is reasonable to extend the time limit for withdrawing the request. Shichang, the only party to request a review for this company, withdrew its request within the 90-day limit. Therefore, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on FMTCs from the PRC covering the period June 1, 2005, through May 31, 2006, with respect to Shichang.

Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the company for which this review is rescinded,

antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of this notice.

Notification Regarding APOs This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR

351.213(d)(4).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On May 26, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register its preliminary results in this administrative review. See Certain Small Diameter Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Brazil; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 30379 (May 26, 2006) (Preliminary Results). We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. On June 26, 2006, we received a case brief from the sole respondent, VMB. No other party commented on the Preliminary Results. Based on our analysis of the comments received from VMB, we corrected errors in currency conversions. These corrections did not affect the margin. No party requested a public hearing.

Scope of the Order

The products covered by the order are seamless pipes produced to the ASTM A335, ASTM A106, ASTM A53 and API 5L specifications and meeting the physical parameters described below, regardless of application. The scope of this order also includes all products used in standard, line, or pressure pipe applications and meeting the physical parameters below, regardless of specification. For purposes of this order, seamless pipes are seamless carbon and alloy (other than stainless) steel pipes, of circular cross-section, not more than 114.3 mm (4.5 inches) in outside diameter, regardless of wall thickness, manufacturing process (hotfinished or colddrawn), end finish (plain end, beveled end, upset end, threaded, or threaded and coupled), or surface finish. These pipes are commonly known as standard pipe, line pipe or pressure pipe, depending upon the application. They may also be used in structural applications. Pipes produced in non

standard wall thickness are commonly referred to as tubes. The seamless pipes subject to this antidumping duty order are currently classifiable under subheadings 7304.10.10.20, 7304.10.50.20, 7304.31.60.50, 7304.39.00.16, 7304.39.00.20, 7304.39.00.24, 7304.39.00.28, 7304.39.00.32, 7304.51.50.05, 7304.51.50.60, 7304.59.60.00, 7304.59.80.10, 7304.59.80.15, 7304.59.80.20, and 7304.59.80.25 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The following information further defines the scope of this order, which covers pipes meeting the physical parameters described above:

Specifications, Characteristics and Uses: Seamless pressure pipes are intended for the conveyance of water, steam, petrochemicals, chemicals, oil products, natural gas, and other liquids and gasses in industrial piping systems. They may carry these substances at elevated pressures and temperatures and may be subject to the application of external heat. Seamless carbon steel pressure pipe meeting the ASTM standard A106 may be used in temperatures of up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, at various American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) code stress levels. Alloy pipes made to ASTM standard A335 must be used if temperatures and stress levels exceed those allowed for A106 and the ASME codes. Seamless pressure pipes sold in the United States are commonly produced to the ASTM A106 standard. Seamless standard pipes are most commonly produced to the ASTM A53 specification and generally are not intended for high temperature service. They are intended for the low temperature and pressure conveyance of water, steam, natural gas, air and other liquids and gasses in plumbing and heating systems, air conditioning units, automatic sprinkler systems, and other related uses. Standard pipes (depending on type and code) may carry liquids at elevated temperatures but must not exceed relevant ASME code requirements. Seamless line pipes are intended for the conveyance of oil and natural gas or other fluids in pipelines. Seamless line pipes are produced to the API 5L specification. Seamless pipes are commonly produced and certified to meet ASTM A106, ASTM A53 and API 5L specifications. Such triple certification of pipes is common because all pipes meeting the stringent ASTM A106 specification necessarily meet the API 5L and ASTM A53 specifications. Pipes meeting the API 5L specification

necessarily meet the ASTM A53 specification. However, pipes meeting the A53 or API 5L specifications do not necessarily meet the A106 specification. To avoid maintaining separate production runs and separate inventories, manufacturers triplecertify

the pipes. Since distributors sell the vast majority of this product, they can thereby maintain a single inventory to service all customers. The primary application of ASTM A

106 pressure pipes and triplecertified

pipes is in pressure piping systems by refineries, petrochemical plants and chemical plants. Other applications are in power generation plants (electricalfossil fuel or nuclear), and in some oil field uses (on shore and off shore) such as for separator lines, gathering lines and metering runs. A minor application of this product is for use as oil and gas distribution lines for commercial applications. These applications

constitute the majority of the market for the subject seamless pipes. However, A

106 pipes may be used in some boiler

applications. The scope of this order includes all seamless pipe meeting the physical parameters described above and produced to one of the specifications listed above, regardless of application, and whether or not also certified to a noncovered specification. Standard, line and pressure applications and the abovelisted specifications are defining characteristics of the scope of this order. Therefore, seamless pipes meeting the physical description above, but not produced to the ASTM A335, ASTM A106, ASTM A53, or API 5L standards shall be covered if used in a standard, line or pressure application. For example, there are certain other ASTM specifications of pipe that, because of overlapping characteristics, could potentially be used in A106 applications. These specifications generally include A162, A192, A210, A333, and A524. When such pipes are used in a standard, line or pressure pipe application, such products are covered by the scope of this order. Specifically excluded from this order are boiler tubing and mechanical tubing, if such products are not produced to ASTM A335, ASTM A106, ASTM A53 or API 5L specifications and are not used in standard, line or pressure

applications. In addition, finished and unfinished oil country tubular goods (OCTG) are excluded from the scope of this order, if covered by the scope of another antidumping duty order from the same country. If not covered by such an OCTG order, finished and unfinished OCTG are included in this scope when used in standard, line or pressure

applications. Finally, also excluded from this order are redraw hollows for colddrawing when used in the production of colddrawn pipe or tube. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of this order is dispositive.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results VMB stated in its case brief dated June 27, 2006, that the Department made a clerical error in the dumping margin calculation in the preliminary results. Specifically, VMB argued that the Department failed to convert U.S. expenses incurred and reported in Brazilian reais to U.S. dollars. See VMB Case Brief, dated June 27, 2006. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we concur with VMB and have corrected these errors. We note that the corrections did not change the margin for the final results. See Memorandum to the File from Helen M. Kramer, Team Leader, and David K. Kraus, Case Analyst: Analysis Memorandum for the Final Results of Administrative Review of Certain Small Diameter Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Brazil: V & M do Brasil, S.A., dated August 31, 2006 (Analysis Memo).

Final Results Of Review:

As a result of our review, we determine that the following weightedaverage margin exists for the period of August 1, 2004, through July 31, 2005:

Producer

Weighted–Average

Margin (Percentage)

Assessment Rates The Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries, pursuant to section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b). The Department calculated importerspecific duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the examined sales for that importer. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. This clarification will apply to entries of seamless pipe during the POR produced by VMB where VMB did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company or companies

involved in the transaction. For a discussion of this clarification, see Notice of Policy Concerning Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of these final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements Furthermore, the following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of seamless pipe from Brazil entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of these final results, as provided by section 751(a) of the Act: (1) for the company covered by this review, the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in the investigation, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the companyspecific rate from the final determination; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or the investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be that established for the producer of the merchandise for the most recent period; and (4) if neither the exporter nor the producer is a firm covered in this review or the investigation, the cash deposit rate will be 124.94 percent, the ‘‘All Others’’ rate established in the lessthan-fairvalue investigation. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order and Amended Final Determination: Certain Small Diameter Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Brazil, 60 FR 39707 (August 3, 1995). These deposit rates, when imposed, shall remain in effect until publication of the final results of the next administrative review.

Notification of Interested Parties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402 (f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretarys presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred, and in the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also is the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance

with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. We are issuing and publishing these results and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.
